Well, one needs to keep apart the concepts. Of course, the
database engine itself is (like PostgreSQL) inherently
multi-(DB)-user and will always make it possible for several
(DB)-users to connect if so configured.

Nonetheless it need not be installed in a *systemwide* way
but could conceivably also be installed in a way local to a
specific *system* user and with system level file
permissions restricted to said system account. Of course,
even that instance will allow multiple DB users to access
but from the point of view of the system user this is a
single-user, "private", "local" installation -- all DB users
semantically map to the one system user.

[KSB] The GT.M engine itself doesn't care where it is installed. A GT.M process requires that the $gtm_dist environment variable point to the directory where it is installed. Indeed, you can have the exact same version of GT.M installed in two locations in the file system, and they can operate completely independently of each other - the processes using each installation would have appropriate values of $gtm_dist, $gtm_log and $gtm_tmp.
